Philadelphia PHL Airport Terminal Map Overview

Main Terminal / Concourses at Philadelphia PHL Airport

Philadelphia Airport:  Terminal layout, Getting Arround, International Arrivals, US Airways/ US Airways Express passengers, & Terminal Details:

The passenger terminal complex at Philadelphia International Airport consists of seven passenger terminals, arranged East to West: TA-West, TA-East, TB/TC, TD/TE - connected in their secure areas, and stand-alone TF
, which offer access to corresponding garages.  Terminals B & C, as well as D & E are connected. As distances between the terminals can be long, even with courtesy shuttles running between Terminals, it is advisable to budget in an extra 30 minutes if you need to connect from an international flight to a regional one. Transfer passengers do not need to re-enter security checks, as all but Terminal F are connected at post-security areas.

NEW:  Nursing mothers now have nursing rooms available at 'Minute Suites' in the corridor connecting Terminals A-East & B, at post-security - first 30 mins are free - for more info call Minute Suites at 215-937-1076, or visit:

Getting around PHL:  As all terminals, other than TF, are connected at post-security areas by moving walkways, and the shuttle bus connects directly to the F gates, transfer passengers do not need to re-enter security checks.
Free large shuttle buses, operated by US Airways , make the following connections at post-security areas, where they run FROM Terminal F (gate F14) only to either gates C16 or A1; and TO Terminal F only from either Gate C16 or Gate A1. Gate C16 provides connections to Terminals C & B, while gate A1 provides connections to Terminals A-East & West.
International Arrivals:  Terminal A-West is the only terminal with US Immigration & Customs.  Unless you have gone through US customs clearance by participating airports, you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag (the tag should indicate layover and final destination Airport Codes). Allow at least 35-45  minutes to connecting terminal.
